Chris Levine is a light artist who works across many mediums in pursuit of an expanded state of perception and awareness through image and form. He uses cross-fertilization across many fields including music, performance, installation, fashion and design in a multitude of collaborations, such as with Massive Attack, Kate Moss, Grace Jones and Jon Hopkins.

Levine is perhaps best known for producing what has been described as one of the most iconic images of the twenty-first century, Lightness of Being. With light and stillness at its core, the sensational portrait of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II presents an utterly fresh depiction of the most famous woman in the world. The National Portrait Gallery stated it was the most evocative image of a royal by any artist.

He has staged light performances and exhibitions internationally in spaces such as Radio City in New York, The Eden Project, The Royal Opera House, MATE museum in Lima, London’s Fine Art Society and the headline installation at MOFO festival for Tasmania’s MONA museum.
